I am putting this kit together from cheap, used pieces I find on ebay, craigslist or other sources. I replace/augment hardware as necessary, then refinish the drums so they look the way I like, and so they appear like they belong together.
I've guessed at the wood composition of the shells, but since I didn't buy them new, I don't know for sure what type of wood they actually are. (Still to be refinished are a 10" rack-tom and a 14" floor-tom. Small is the key idea for this set.)
- 5x13" snare, 7-ply mahogany, 6 lugs
- 13x18" bass drum, 6-ply basswood w/mahogany veneer, 8 lugs
- 13" Paiste "502" hi-hats
- 16" Meinl Classics Custom medium crash
- 20" Meinl HCS ride
